Aloha and welcome to Beth’s Hawaiian Hideaway in Captain Cook/Honaunau in South Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Our beautiful 'Plumeria Queen Suite” with shared pool is a great place for couples or anyone who would like to have a wonderful Kona, Big Island vacation rental that’s much more affordable and offers more amenities than most condos or B and B’s offer. JUST ADDED 3 stand up paddle boards and 3 kayaks free of charge.

Cook your own meals in your efficiency kitchen, BBQ on your private deck or dine out...it’s your choice. We are close to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants and many activities and a great jumping-off place for other activities around the island. This adorable and spacious (400 sq ft) studio with queen bed is open, bright and airy. The entire ocean facing wall of the Hideaway is filled with screened windows and peaceful views of the lawn, landscaping, fruit trees and the sea. Enjoy the lovely living room area with bamboo couch and chairs, satellite TV, and both indoor and outdoor dining areas. Sit under the Plumeria tree on your own private deck to enjoy watching the sun set . Sleep like a baby in the comfy Queen size bed. The suite has a private 3/4 bath with shower, complimentary robes included. You will have a separate private entrance in a beautiful residential area.

About David Stuit

Beth sitting on Seawall in Kona

David Stuit purchased this studio in 2007

Why David Stuit chose Kona Coast

My wife Beth grew up in Malibu, California and has always wanted to return to the ocean so when we visited friends here in the Spring of 2007 we both fell in love with the South Kona area and after much web looking we found this place. The rest is history

What makes this studio unique

We are very well located for those who love to snorkel and kayak and for these day trips to Volcano Park, South Point or Hilo. We are within 2 hours of any where else on the Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful suprise we have stumbled upon. How lucky we are to have had such warm and genuine hosts. The tips you have given us have been invaluable, much prefered to any guide book. Thanks to the tree outside our door we are now certifiable star fruit addicts. Far too short, our stay with you has been a little slice of heaven for budget travelers such as our selves. We will forever remember your hideaway as the gateway to some of the world's best snorkeling..... who could forget the dolphins?!! We hope to see you again. Take Care.

Welcoming home away from home, old Hawaii style!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our 16 day stay at Beth's Hawaiian Hideaway in South Kona on the Big Island. If you are looking for a respite from, well, anything, this is the place to be. This is not a resort or hotel experience, this is laid back, old-style Hawaiian living in a friendly neighborhood only a 5 minute drive from Two Step, the Place of Refuge, and the S. Kona Fruit Stand, and it's the perfect launching pad for so much more (the volcano, green and black sand beaches, botanical gardens, coffee tours, great food....).

The onsite hosts, Dave and Beth, are friendly and generous with their recommendations for activities and restaurants, and with their loaner equipment (everything from kayaks & snorkeling equipment to beach chairs & umbrellas, and even coolers, beach bags, and hats!).

In addition to being comfortable and adorable, the dwelling is appointed with everything you can think of (and many things we did not!), and the artsy, eclectic decor is fun and entertaining (as are the geckos, which are everywhere!). It feels private and spacious, even though the hosts live upstairs and there are 2 other rental units. And the pool area is so inviting, we spent a whole day there!

Bonus: Ripe papaya, mango, and avocado can be found right on or around the property. Talk about a fresh breakfast! Yummy.

Be aware, it is not "quiet" here in the usual sense... the birds start singing with the sun, and the koki frogs kick in with their songs in the evening. Earplugs are provided, and my partner used them a couple of times for the early morning birdsong, but I never did and I slept really well.

We put over 1300 miles on our little rental car exploring most of the 8 climate zones on the island (Hawaii has 4 out of the 5 major climate zones in the world, and 8 out of 13 of the sub-zones), and we came back every night expect one, when we stayed on the east side in Puna... and this place always felt like home!

Mahalo and much aloha to Dave and Beth for everything. We so look forward to our return!

Can we go back there today, please?

  • 5 of 5

We left the Plumeria Suite 2 weeks ago and keep wishing we could be back there. This was our 7th or 8th visit to the same unit over the years, and we will return next year too! The cottage is nestled in the jungle, quiet in the daytime with a gentle koki and gecko duet in the evenings. The Plumeria Suite is well appointed with snorkels, fins, boogey boards, kayaks, towels and other supplies you may use and need, but you don’t really want to have to bring on the plane. “Our cottage” is very close to Honaunau (Two-Step) and Kealakekua Bay, meaning amazing snorkeling every day. This is not the place if you want to be around people all the time – it is great for those seeking quiet beauty. Enjoy!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. Dave was very helpful. We made juice every morning from fruit trees right in our backyard. We loved all the fresh air and sounds at night. The sheets smelled so fresh and clean and very comfortable. Decorated so cute. Easy drive to great snorkeling and lots of history all around. Thanks Dave and Beth!

super-equipped, beautifully decorated outdoor living without the bugs

  • 5 of 5

Beth's Hawaiian Hideaway was a wonderful last stop on our 30th anniversary tour of the Big Island. The setting and design of the Hideaway made us feel as if we were experiencing all the pleasantries of the outdoors while enjoying the comforts of home. It was equipped with everything we have possibly needed and more. We so enjoyed our stay, we didn't get to the kayaks as we had intended. The location was fabulous and Beth and Dave were delightful hosts. Highly recommended!

Friendly Hidden Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a four-day stay here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our host brought us a bowl of lovely fresh fruit and was very helpful with advice on local sights and eats. My wife was a little unsettled the first night by the noise of frogs, insects and whatnot during the night, but after getting used to it found it somewhat pleasing.
